From the beginning, St. Elmo's Coffee Shop was designed to be a community gathering place. Anyone and everyone comes not only to drink the coffee but sit and read the paper, enjoy art by local artists, listen to great live music and most of all enjoy the community and conversation of others.
Located minutes from St. Elmo's, The Lab All Ages music program at The Lab @ Convergence is another place that seeks to build and foster community, particularly around the common love of music and art.
"I love. . . ." was a participatory art project designed to document and amplify all the reasons why we love certain neighborhood hangout spots, while building community around those common loves in our neighborhood, places like The Lab @ Convergence and St. Elmo's
"I love . . ." existed in the context of St. Elmo's Coffee Pub and the Fest Too art exhibit.
